    The best time to go is during the night. The church is lit up and you are almost alone.

    Entering just Piazza San Pietro is free if you are patient enough to stand in the line. However, if you wish to tour the chapel and museum as well, start your way from the museum.

    There are two marble spots either side of the obelisk in the middle of the square. If you can stand and look at the colonnade from here, you can only see the one pillar in each row.
